Is your LinkedIn Account the best that it can be?

Make sure your LinkedIn account, your resume and your cover letter are all representing you well!

Business Career Services Semester Plan – What should you be doing right now?

I have tried to take the guess work out of it.  If you are not quite sure you know what you should be doing related to finding a full-time position or an internship, I have created a document that can help.

This is our new semester plan of action!!  There are eight steps to help you to find success.  What step are you on?  Have you started?

Do you need some help?  If so, schedule an appointment with one of our career counselors (through hirebusrams- look for the “Make Appointment” link to the left in yellow) or you can come in for a walk-in to get things going.  See you soon!

Walk-ins are 15 minutes, no appointment necessary!

Mondays and Thursdays from 4:30-6:30pm

Wednesdays from 9-12 and 1-6:30pm
